'Russian Rebellion': Local and Global Consequences

... cultures and ways of life; and human rights. In practice, the implementation of these principles varies from country to country and changes over time. However, the diversity of practice has little effect on the integrity of the ideology. Unlike the West, Russia does not offer an alternative ideological menu. So Russia differs from the Soviet Union, which at one time adopted another modernist ideology - socialism - and actively promoted it as a global alternative.

Lessons of Ukraine and the Death of Leadership: Only History Exists

... well as a sense of decent manners. Finally If you have got this far, you may agree that it is time to conclude. As a former diplomat turned historian of diplomatic history, this is what I have gathered, simply put: following the West’s failure to westernise Russia during the Yeltsin years, it was unable to accept this failure, since the NATO business juggernaut had no reverse gear. Once atavistically anti-Russian Poland and the Baltic statelets had jumped on the bandwagon, prodded by the US and EU, it was ...


India Is Irreplaceable Balancing Force in Global Systemic Transition

... precisely that in order to maximize their strategic autonomy within this paradigm by coordinating their complementary grand strategies in the Eastern Hemisphere: Moscow’s Greater Eurasian Partnership (GEP) and Delhi’s Indo-Pacific vision. The U.S.-led West’s unprecedented anti-Russian sanctions that were imposed in response to Moscow’s special military operation in Ukraine raised concerns that this targeted Great Power would become disproportionately dependent on China in response since the People’s Republic was considered ...


Consolidation of the West: Opportunities and Limits

... institutionalization of the quadrilateral QUAD security dialogue, the grandiose Summit of Democracies hosted by Washington (all seen last year), not to mention an activization of joint efforts in the more traditional formats of interaction between the leading Western powers, such as NATO summits and G7 tops. Andrey Kortunov: NATO’s Cheek by Russia’s Jowl If we refer to the first months of 2020 as a starting point, when the coronavirus pandemic suddenly awakened the most archaic reflexes of national egoism in the West, at some point questioning common values of the Euro-Atlantic, we should ...


Three Scenarios for the End of the Russia-Ukraine Conflict

... the encounter are not fair. Russia is bigger, wealthier and militarily more powerful than Ukraine is. On the other hand, Ukraine enjoys international sympathy and almost unlimited defensive, economic, humanitarian and intelligence assistance from the West. Russia can rely only on itself and is exposed to the pressure of increasingly painful sanctions. Many Russian experts are used to saying that the massive Western military and other support is the only reason why Ukraine has not yet crumbled or surrendered....


Professor Jeffrey Sachs: “I Don’t Believe in Isolating Russia

... implementation of the Minsk Agreements, and the removal of economic sanctions on Russia. By rapidly reaching this kind of agreement, countless lives will be saved and the world will be made vastly safer. How do you see exit strategy from the current West-Russia stalemate over Ukraine and what are the prospects for de-escalating the quite dangerous situation that we are currently in? I hope that rationality prevails on all sides. This war is a lose-lose proposition for the entire world, and a very dangerous ...


Restoration, Reformation, Revolution? Blueprints for the World Order after the Russia-Ukraine conflict

... entire global political and economic system, making the world order more inclusive and democratic. These demands will be increasingly difficult to ignore amid ongoing and accelerating changes in the global balance of power. The confrontation between the West and Russia will not conclude with achieving a compromise on Ukraine. The U.S. and Europe will see Moscow as the main challenge to global security. Therefore, the crisis should prompt the U.S. to make additional concessions to China and the Global South in ...

Will China “Lean to One Side”?

For the West, the battle for Ukraine has become the battle for Russia. The battle for Russia is only the first phase of the battle against China For the West, Russia’s actions in Ukraine have revealed and confirmed the true face of Russia and its leadership.

End of Diplomacy? Or a Toast for the Swedish Masters

... also has good relations with Egypt and Saudi Arabia which are uneasy about the solidity of American support for their type of government. This leaves plenty of room for Russia. I would like to add that Russia has perhaps overestimated her needs for the West. And Russia may have overlooked, that in GDP, Russia is not a very big country. Countries like the UK with a big GDP needs trading partners with big GDP, which limits the UK’s options for significant trading partners to just three in the World—EU, U.S....
